The Gear 360 is available in brick and mortar locations starting today


Samsung’s 360-degree camera, the Gear 360, was unveiled at Mobile World Congress 2016 alongside the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, but has been a bit of an enigma. The camera has been available for purchase online, but it took a little while before that was possible in the US even though it was available in other major markets around the world.

The Gear 360 provides a new way to create and share even more rich memories of your friends, family and adventures. Because Gear 360 captures in 360 degree spheres, you can relive the whole experience, in 30MP spherical stills, or up to 3840 X 1920 high resolution video. Using a compatible Galaxy device, consumers can easily edit, stitch and share 360 content via 360-supported social networks, or view it with Samsung Gear VR powered by Oculus. Suited for any environment, the dust and splash-resistant Gear 360 is portable, versatile, and user-friendly.

Now, Samsung will be providing different in-store retailers with inventory of the nifty little device. Those retailers include AT&T, Best Buy, Sprint, US Cellular, and Verizon Wireless locations. The Gear 360 is priced at $349.99 and can be purchased from your favorite brick and mortar store starting today.

The timing of this announcement is a little questionable as we aren’t too far off from the release of the Galaxy S8 where a new version of the Gear 360 may be released as well.
